What If I Want "Green"?

When did red become unique enough to deserve quotation marks? Just can't find good help these days. *sigh*

Thanks to Carly for this one.

Waisting Paint to Save the World

Found at one of those paint-it-yourself pottery studios:
If I want to save the world - where should I put the paint? Apparently the waist is out. Maybe the hips? Does this mean I can't paint my body for football games? Some people suck all the fun out of life.

Have Your Hair's Done, Then Eat "Lunch"

Took a trip through South Carolina recently. It was a Spring Break time, so we kept to the back roads. Which turned out to be a bonus when we passed through small towns.

First I saw the Wig's sign, so I did a quick U-turn, then turned down the side road to get the picture. U-turned again to get back on track, and while waiting at the stoplight, saw the restaurant sign. BINGO!

The restaurant sign cracks me up. Capital letters sprinkled throughout. Random quotation marks. The change from Every Day to Mon-Fri (were they going under offering those deals on the weekends?)

It was all I could do to not tour the entire little town looking for more. Ah, but we were running late and I wanted to get to our destination before dark.

Maybe some day soon I'll tour some small towns nearby and see what I can find.

Now who in their right mind would do that for fun?

How to Steal the Show

One of my favorite shows is The Biggest Loser. Love it. It's very empowering, and chock full of positive ideas. The contestants make such huge changes in their lives!

So, we're watching the finale last week. Everyone has their fans/family in the live audience. So what would you do if you were going to be in a live studio audience? Make a sign, of course. A great BIG sign for all the world to see (or at least the world that cares about the show). And if you are really lucky, YOUR sign will be on TV! Can you stand it?! Set the DVR, tell the entire extended family, shout it to the world!

And make sure your sign will be remembered:

Maybe It's A Foreign Word?

(click the image if it is too small to read)

and . . . spelling lessons maybe?

I found this today when googling theaters. This particular theatre (note the 're' - that means it's high class) is located in a very affluent area, and it caters to independent films. A very nice place, actually. But look too deep and you discover that class has nothing to do with spelling ability.

I'll give them a bit of break though - I know how easy it is to write those descriptions and never see them again unless you are searching for your own website, seeing as that's the bulk of what I do for a living.
